New Solange music is on the way. On Thursday (Feb. 28), the “Cranes In The Sky” singer dropped an enigmatic trailer in anticipation for her next album.
The one-minute clip, which was posted to Solange’s Twitter account, features a coterie of dancers clad in oversized black blazers and matching bras. The phalanx performs intricate choreography in a single line over a combination of rapped and sung lyrics like, “Sometimes I dream I go so high/For the ride/Sometimes I feel I’m gonna die/Sometimes I feel I’m gonna die/Got dreams and my eyes wide.”
The trailer is also interspersed with what appears to be home video footage of Solange, as well as a separate scene of the singer joining her dancers in a small room, all dressed alike in long blonde wigs and brown, one-shoulder leotards. The visual ends abruptly by cutting away to a woman saying “nothing without intention. Do nothing without intention,” while performing a cooking demonstration at her kitchen table.
While no release date has been announced, a forthcoming LP would be the first follow-up to Solange’s acclaimed 2016 album, A Seat At The Table, which earned the star her first Grammy award for best R&B performance in 2017.
